I really really like it. It is fresh, it is slightly sour, it has wine aroma, it is refreshing, it is different, it is unexpected, it is really good beer. 2015 batch.

Cunningham (6662) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2016
Nice pleasant evening sipper. Belgium did unfortunately lose their first match in Euro 2016/France while I enjoyed this one.
Deep nutty color. Almost amber. A thin tan layer on top, due to a quite very soft carbonation. Nice intensity in the aroma. Medium to full body. Oily texture. Pleasant balance between sourness and acidity. Oak, vinous, mild vinegar, fruity and toffee.
[Bottle from a trade with Grima]

samires (27) - POLAND - JUN 14, 2016
In aroma bit acetic, mainly sweet caramel and raisins notes, notes of cherries and red wine are also present. Dark red clear colour with small beige head. In taste mainly sweet, caramel and bready notes; little acetic and sour, red wine notes and cherries are also present, little tart but ends fairly sweet. Full bodied, sweet, but not overwhelming, medium carbonation. Nothing on the wild side, pretty mild and sweet.

Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Langnes. Drukket på Bergstua 2 Jun 16. Ultramørk amber. Middels høyt skum med litt farge. Tung kirsebæraroma. Smaken har et lett kirsebærpreg. God fylde. Blir litt syrlig etter hvert. Bra - men lite variasjon.
